The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Sunstone Hotel Investors

Notably, that recent purchase by John Arabia is the biggest insider purchase of Sunstone Hotel Investors shares that we've seen in the last year. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of US$8.75. Of course they may have changed their mind. But this suggests they are optimistic. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it's a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value.

It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
